Le Mans striker Ismael Bangoura has completed a switch to Ukraine giants Dynamo Kiev.
Bangoura scored 12 goals last season, attracting the attention of Lyon among others.
The 22-year-old was keen to join Dynamo Kiev, who also announced the signing of Palmeiras striker Michael, after learning of their interest and moves on a four-year contract.
"I want to thank Ismael for those two great seasons spent with Le Mans," chairman Henri Legarda told the club's official website.
"This summer he asked to be transferred when he received an offer from Dynamo Kiev. As it was an opportunity for him to play in the Champions League, I agreed to let him go."
Meanwhile, Chiguy Lucau has signed a three-year deal with relegated Sedan.
